Amazing August 16: Garden Play

Amazing August 12: After The Rain

After the Rain 24 x 24 inches acrylic on canvas $185

I painted this at the end of a rain storm.  I did spray the water to get some color flow, but then I leaned it against a tree and giant drops of water fell.  Big spots were left in the color.  I like it!  I hope you do, too!
And here is why I'm offering a body of work {almost} every day this month. . . 
As you may or may not know, the summer event that I was banking on {based on previous years' sales} to cover my expenses of this summer and early into the Fall was a bust.  {I did not even cover my costs.}  This has left me both super stressed and incredibly driven! 
Everyday during the month of August I will post a piece of art that I made this summer that I am offering for sale!Here is how it works: The first person who send me a FB message, text, or email and makes payment arrangements will be the proud owner of a new piece of original art.  Some will be small, and some will be quite larger.  The price range will be $12 - $…
